Hello, everybody! My name is AdderTude, and I’ve been a gamer my entire life. I am half-Japanese on my mom’s side but my second language is Brazilian Portuguese from living in southeastern Brazil for a couple years (east São Paulo). Ever since I “hacked” my dad’s computer when I was three (by figuring out his password from watching him on it), I’ve been rocking games ever since on PC. My console days started when I was introduced to the NES (Generation Three) and really took off when my two older brothers and I got a SEGA Genesis (aka Mega Drive in Japan, Generation Four) for Christmas when I was five.
Over the years, I saw consoles come and go. I saw the rise and decline of the PSOne and N64 from Gen. Five (along with the failure of the SEGA DreamCast), the popularity of the PS2 with the GameCube and newcomer Xbox in Gen. Six, and the current mainstays of the PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii in Gen. Seven. Now with the consoles of Gen. Eight (Xbox One, PS4, and Wii U) on the market, my console days have largely declined and I spend most of my days on the computer with the addition of the online market Steam (and their constant multitude of games on sale).
In my possession I have a clear-case Nintendo GameBoy, a teal GameBoy Color with a yellow battery cover, a Nintendo DS Lite, and an Xbox 360 (the Wii in the family belongs to my parents). Currently I’m rockin’ a Fujitsu LifeBook AH531 (outdated by roughly two years) with a silver Logitech M310 wireless mouse and standard parts. These days I’m found online on League of Legends, Infinite Crisis, sometimes on Scarlet Blade (when I’m fairly bored), Champions Online, and RIFT (both rarely) when I’m not blogging, catching up on YouTube, or playing some of my offline games.
My handle is a portmanteau of “adder,” which is a type of snake (according to the Chinese calendar, 1989 is the Year of the Snake), and “attitude.” I created the name as a replacement for my original handle on League of Legends and I’ve stuck with it ever since. Even some of my friends from my favorite hang-out spot at college (a game shop) call me by gamer tag rather than my RL name.
